These are vocabulary journals for Engage NY/Eureka Math Grade 2: All Modules. These journals include selected math vocabulary words (based on the Module Overview and also from looking through the module and determining necessary vocabulary), space on each page to write the definition of the word, draw a picture/give an example and use the word in a sentence. These journals are meant to be used as a supplement to ensure that students have a deep understanding of the vocabulary and can use the vocabulary in conversations about math. This is great for accountable talk. I would fill these out with students by agreeing on a definition as a class, and have students generate their own examples and sentences. If students are struggling, you can also do the whole page as guided practice, or start off by modeling process for the first few words. Ideally, students will have access to the journals throughout the units, so they can refer back to them as necessary. This is a scaffold I am implementing for students with disabilities/IEPs and ELLs. These are great to do as a math centers, during math intervention or as part of your debrief/discussion.
